Who laid this egg? Araucana, EE, OE?

Hi guys,

Yesterday when I went out to the coop, I found my first blue egg! Although I'm glad that one more of my ladies is laying, I'm wondering who laid it. It is distinctly blue, but a powdery-grey blue, and I suppose I was expecting a brighter hue?

I had one Araucana and Olive Egger yet to lay, so is this a true-blue (pun intended) araucana egg, or possibly the olive egger, who may be more of an Easter egger? Any pics would be great too - just love seeing all the different coloured eggs!

Thanks!

Looks like an Olive egg to me!

wait a minute...it looks like an EE to me now.

It's so hard to tell the color of eggs from a picture, sorry.

Yeah the lighting isn't the best (I took the photo at night), but if araucana eggs are usually a brighter blue it narrows it down at least. The two olive eggers are supposed to be marans crosses, one lays those dark olive ones in the photos so maybe the other was from a much lighter brown layer?
